SUMMIT, NJ — The Summit Policemen’s Benevolent Association Local 55 and Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association Local 54 hosted the annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots holiday toy drive, with support from the Summit Police Department and Summit Fire Department.

An estimated 1,000 toys were donated this year. The toys were picked up on Friday, Dec. 16, by members of the PBA and FMBA, and delivered to the Marine Corps facility in South Plainfield. The Liberty Group of Berkeley Heights donated the use of a truck and driver, Summit resident and PBA and FMBA supporter David Platt, to deliver the toys. After the toys were sorted, they were distributed to children in need throughout Union County and the surrounding area.

The PBA and FMBA thanked the businesses that collected toys and the citizens who donated them.
